Yes I knew Mark ... who made this recording... it's good!
Yes, I knew Mark Severson from Seattle, who made this recording. He knew what he doing good one and he was kind enough to give me several of his. Truthfully, it is hard to remember, if I got this one from him or Ron Elner. They both were excellent tapers!
You have to take into consideration here, that Bob Weir was sick, (it wasn't always Garcia who got sick from time to time) This is also true for the next night ie. New Year's How do I know this? Because Bill Graham on one or both of these nights mentioned it during the break!
I remember, the feedback section into Truckin' was awesome! I was in my usual spot 1/4 of the way back to the board in the middle slightly to the left. So I can usually see Weir very well etc and vice versa. So I was kind of feeling like I might have stifled his enthusiasm for feedback because even though I was thoroughly enjoying it; it seemed the moment after I put my fingers in my ears and he looked at me they stopped doing feedback. Or was that just my imagination?
